Roast Goose at HKIA

I'm flying back to Manila via HKIA, and I'm arriving before dinner so I was thinking it would be nice to bring home a Roast Goose for my family back home. I was wondering if there is anything inside HKIA departure area that I could but those boxed Roast Goose?

I would really like to get Yung Kee but I only have 3 hours so I doubt I could skedaddle to Central and order one and take it home with me.

Any suggestions? I always eat at Tasty Congee...do they have takeaways?

The only good way of eating a roast goose is at Yung Kee freshly roasted. It is not the same kept warm or packed to go to be eaten later.

There's not much of a choice...a packed roast goose from HK is still better than those you get in Manila.

I found this thread and thought I post my question here instead of starting a new thread.

Last week I 'explored' HKG (instead of just sitting at the lounge) and found out there's a Yung Kee at departure level. To those of you who have tried the one at HKG: does it make sense to buy roast goose from Central or should I just buy it from HKG before departing? Yes, in theory it should be the same (as it is the same restaurant) but I wonder if the ones at HKG are 'leftover' from Central (i.e. they keep new/fresh ones at Central and send old ones from the day before to HKG)?

irs about the same. Iíve bought a few times it was still fresh. Caveat they do wrap them in plastic before stuffing the goose in the box, so donít expect the skin to be crispy.

Personally I like Tasty Congee's Roast Goose more, unfortunately last time I was there was December and they were still under renovation.

I don't recommend Tai Hing though...

Even tried heating up the goose in an oven? It should help to crisp the skin a bit. Needs a little trial and error in terms of the oven temperature as I only use a toaster oven but it's definitely better than heating it in the microwave.

Wouldn't it make the meat really dry then?

As I use a toaster oven, I usually just heat up small batches and heat it to the point where the meat is slightly warm. The fat in the goose (unless you cut it all out) will help keep the meat moist.

Good point. I had assumed you were heating the whole goose
